When you’re desperate to wear a pretty dress on a casual night out but you’re battling with chilly spring temperatures and the chance of spilling a pint down your front, a full circle skirt with a biker jacket is a practical (but still stylish) alternative.
I went out for drinks with friends the night I wore this, and when you’re frequenting village pubs rather than a smart bar in town, it makes sense to err on the side of practicality with a leather jacket and boots (no skyscraper heels or floaty chiffon in other words). A faux leather biker is perfect for this time of year and I don’t think you can get a better pairing for any dress or skirt – it works every time, adding that touch of toughness and stopping you looking too girly.
A few years ago I would never have thought of this combination myself (leather jacket with a pretty dress? huh?), yet thanks to the power of the interwebs and, of course, Pinterest, the combination pops up all over the place, proving itself to be a classic and winning look. Do you pair up your biker with your dresses and skirts, or are you desperate to try it – do share in the comments!
